Bombardier tapped for Spanish signaling

Posted on July 24, 2013

Bombardier Transportation won the first contract awarded by ADIF as part of the upgrade of the Mediterranean Corridor between Alicante and Barcelona to deliver its Bombardier Interflo 200 mainline solution.

The section between San Vicente and Tarragona will be equipped by Bombardier, part of a longer section of the Mediterranean Corridor being equipped by a consortium comprising Bombardier and other signaling equipment suppliers. The total contract is valued at approximately $80 million, with Bombardier’s share valued at approximately $22 million.

The Mediterranean Corridor will be upgraded over three years as part of ADIF’s infrastructure improvement plans, which will result in better connections between the Spanish harbors and European freight routes. This will feature the adoption of a dual-gauge solution with three rails that will allow either Spanish or international gauge traffic.

Bombardier’s scope on the San Vicente to Tarragona section will involve the installation of two new and the upgrade of five existing Bombardier EBI Lock 950 computer-based interlocking systems. The first contract is planned for completion by March 2015.
